Thanks to the generosity of parishioner John. H. Stafford, Trinity Memorial Church is able to offer scholarships to young men and women pursuing formal education beyond high-school.
John H. Stafford Scholarship
Trinity Memorial parishioner John H. Stafford in 1930 left an endowment to Trinity Memorial Church “to be used in assisting boys and young men along educational and training lines.” It was Mr. Stafford’s desire to provide financial assistance, especially to those who were studying for the ordained ministry. A number of years ago, the Vestry enlarged the provision to enable men, and later women, to apply for loans to support their general college education. The loan program was eventually replaced with an outright scholarship award.
Communicants in good standing at Trinity Memorial Church are eligible to apply for a Stafford Scholarship. Applications are invited from students entering or continuing in undergraduate or graduate degree programs, or vocational or licensure programs. Priority will be given to students seeking ordination in The Episcopal Church.
Application materials can be obtained from Trinity Memorial's Stafford Scholarship Committee chair, Dr. Sandra D. Michael.
Although electronically prepared applications are preferred, they may also be typed or hand written. All applications must be submitted to Dr. Michael or the church office. The deadline for receipt of applications is typically May 1. For more information, contact Dr. Michael.
